Basically just that. I love the sound signature of my SF5s, but they're not really built that well, the cable is not too durable and they have pretty terrible strain relief all around. So I'd like something that's more uh, resistant to abuse. I'm on my second pair, which lasted a lot longer than my first pair mostly because I started reinforcing the nonexistent strain relief with heat shrink tubing. I intend to replace the plug on my broken first pair, but yeah, still would prefer a different option if one's available.
 
Requirements:
 
- Sounds similar to the SF5 non-Pro (UE600)
- Well-constructed and durable
- Has a right-angle plug with good strain relief
- Doesn't cost more than $150
 
Bonuses:
 
- Works with Shure olives
- Has a replaceable cable
- Costs a lot less than $150
- Has smartphone buttons
